How to Find Lysol Wipes
Target and Walmart are stocking their shelves with Lysol products and other disinfecting items but not shipping them.
If you head to this link at Target.com and put in your zip code it will tell you which stores in your area have items in stock.
For instance, when I search 4 out of 5 Targets in an 60 mile radius have them. They just are not shipping them.
Don’t even bother with Amazon!
